Love this resort ! The staff is top notch. Prices are amazing food is excellent ! Ski instructors are the best! The snow is amazing. Terrain is always well groomed, and the bumps rock they even have a triple black run. To skip the lines of people I suggest weekday skiing, it’s like having your own private ski resort!!

Great to rain and beautiful views of Georgetown Lake... Full Review
Discovery is a wonderful small ski area run by folks who really know what they’re doing. The result is fantastic grooming, lifts that run and the best food values of any Montana resort (check out the fresh rolls, cookies, soups, entrees). The beginner area is perfect for kids and viewing parents. There’s a full range of runs including a double-diamond backside for the deepest days and more steeply inclined. The views from the ski hill Are a mini Lake Tahoe with the Pintler Wilderness Peaks surrounding Georgetown Lake, The drive from the north through cowboy land is peaceful and spectacular. Overall, a great experience if you stay local or drive remotely.... Full Review
This is a great local hill. One of, if not, my favorite. Three back side terrain is quite fun and you can find some technical terrain if you're looking. However, the runs are fairly short in comparison, especially on the steeper back side.... Full Review
We’ve skied western Montana for 30+ years and choose Disco as our favorite for size, variety of terrain from too easy to too hard, lack of crowds (even on busy weekends, skiers are well-dispersed and lines aren’t bad), and their affordable season passes. And the scenery is great, too!... Full Review
There are more than a few resorts within a few hours drive that’d I’d rather go to for better terrain, snow, and apres ski. Not bad if you live in the area and are teaching kids to ski. Lift ticket are reasonable. Not many accommodations close by. The harder terrain is patchy with coverage. More of a groomer mountain.... Full Review
Over 2000 acres of terrain, small local crowds, and cheap lift tickets make this one of the best family-friendly resorts you'll ever find. It may have THE BEST beginner to intermediate terrain of any resort in the Rockies. Your beginners don't have to be relegated to the bottom third of the mountain like at other resorts and your experts will stay entertained on the backside which is nearly all double-black diamond. The resort has a nice little day lodge with a decent grill and food selection and a picnic area downstairs where you can pack your own cooler. This resort "gets it" when it comes to families. Jackson Hole and Big Sky are great, but they aren't three-times better than Discovery. If money is no object, by all means, choose one of those resorts. But if you're looking for a great and affordable mountain to ski throughout the season, it's hard to beat Discovery.... Full Review
